In the past few weeks, Direk Antonette Jadaone’s name has been buzzing on social media. Her name was dragged into a controversial issue when Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina cited the director after being asked about her negative opinion on working with the sensational love team Jadine.
Direk Cathy claimed that she was not so keen on working with James Reid and Nadine Lustre based on the rumors she heard from her colleagues, one of whom is Jadaone. Since then, many enraged Jadine fans were going after Antonette Jadaone’s alleged unsavory comment of Jadine.
To clear her name once and for all, direk Antonette finally addressed the issue in a press conference. Speaking to Philippine Entertainment Portal, the 33-year-old director claimed that tried to reach out to Nadine to talk about the issue:
“Affected? Di naman affected nang bonggang-bongga. Ang ginawa ko nung lumabas yun, kinausap ko agad si Nadine. Yun ang first instinct ko. Nasa soap pa nga ako nun, nagdi-direct ako, ‘tapos di ako makapag-direct. ‘Hala, kailangan kong makausap si bakla.’”
For the “Never Not Love You” director, it’s all about open communication and compromise. When the issue exploded, the first thing she did was to talk personally to all the people involved.
This positive and direct-to-the-point solution proved to be effective, since they were able to ‘air out’ issues about one another, if there was any. According to the director, she spoke with both Nadine and James – hoping that all of them could do better in the future.
In the end, direk Antonette claimed that she has already apologized. For now, she’s already excited to go on a London trip with James and Nadine:
“After nun, naging okay na, naging open na yung communication after that. Feeling ko anuman yung mga nasabi, feeling ko yun yung mga before pa bago nag-usap. Apologized? Oo naman. Ang nakikita kasi ng mga tao yung bad side lang. Pag resolved na, resolved na.”
